Off Topic: I think the Independent should consider allowing anonymous letters and posting. Yes, I am aware of the down side to that; all of it (including accusations of cowardice). I've debated it extensively elsewhere. However, I also think the threat of boycotts, threats to innocent family members, being ostracized, and adverse government action certainly chills my willingness to speak freely. Our founding fathers were in accord. Some of their more persuasive arguments were submitted under pseudonyms or anonymously due to fear of Loyalist intimidation, loss of business, hostility in the community and the threat posed by King George's troops. Comments could be moderated for persuasion just to keep the trolls out. Food for thought.
